Dual noise/Random Voltage Generator
The MOS-LAB 1016 contains two identical White/Pink Noise and Random Voltage Generators.
The two noise outputs, A and B, are generated from two independent transistors noise sources. Through successive filtering, the white noise is transformed into pink noise and finally into a slow random voltage. Output attenuators and on/off switches are provided for the two noise sources and the random voltage outputs.
The maximum amplitude of all the outputs is adjusted so that an output voltage will exceed +/-5V about 1% of the time. This insures a paucity of excursions past +/-10V.
The white noise generator produces a flat power bandwidth from 5 Hz to 20 kHz. The pink noise is filtered to attenuate highsand boost the low frequencies. The slow random output has a peak signal power at 1 Hz.
